News ImageSan Bernardino Needs Your Help to Meet Our Water Conservation Goal of 28%

The San Bernardino Municipal Water Department (SBMWD) thanks our customers for helping meet the State mandated water reduction goal of 28% this past summer. Unfortunately, residents have recently increased water usage but the 28% reduction goal remains the same. PLEASE continue to conserve water during winter months.

SBMWD is working hard to connect with our customers by sharing resources, tools, and offering rebates to promote and reward water efficiency. We strongly encourage customers to contact us at (909) 384-5141, or please visit conserve.sbmwd.org to report water waste, check out our robust rebate program, and learn how to save water both indoors and out.

Thank you again for helping our City meet water conservation goals and protect our local water supply.
